Dr. Seuss Week!

In anticipation of the big school show this weekend, we decided to dedicate this week to all things Seuss!

The "Things" from The Cat in the Hat invaded our classroom!

We did a directed drawing of The Cat in the Hat. The boys and girls listened so closely to each step of the directions to create their masterpieces! Take a look!

We even learned about Dr. Seuss in our Weekly Reader. We learned so much about the books that he wrote and illustrated and discovered some clues to help us determine if a book was really written by Dr. Seuss. Did you know that Dr. Seuss drew all U-shaped pupils for his characters' eyes?

Dr. Seuss stories were in our library all week long. We read many during circle time and the children loved listening to the rhymes. Some of the students even started reading the books themselves. Listen to these amazing young readers!

George reading Fox in Socks

Kent reading Go, Dog, Go!

Tristan reading One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Nolan reading Put Me in the Zoo

Priya reading Green Eggs and Ham

The children were treated to a special preview dress rehearsal performance of Seussical Jr. on Thursday. Students in grades 1-8 put on an amazing show and the Pre-K students were a wonderful audience! It was fun to hear them talk about their favorite parts of the show and who they would like to play when they get to be a "big kid." We hope to see you at the show this weekend!
